On Day 4, you will begin your amazing 3-day El Nido camping adventure to go swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing at beautiful beaches. Visit Pinagbuyutan Island, Lagen Island, Snake Island and camp overnight at Ipil Beach. Continue your adventure on Day 5 to Zimisu Island, Dalojo Beach or Miniloc Island (depending on conditions) and camp overnight. On Day 6, go to Helicopter and Cadlao Islands before returning to El Nido. Relax in El Nido with a free day on Day 7.

Day by Day Itinerary:

Day 1: Puerto Princesa Airport Pick-up

On arrival at Puerto Princesa airport you will be met and transferred to your accommodation for check-in. Enjoy the rest of the day at leisure to settle-in and overnight.

 

Day 2: Underground River Tour (B)

The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park is one of the most important protected areas of the Philippines. It features a spectacular limestone or karst landscape with one of the most complex cave systems. It contains an 8.2 km long underground river that flow directly to the sea. The lower half of the river is brackish and is affected by the ocean’s tide. An underground river directly flowing into the sea, and the associated tidal influence, makes it a significant natural phenomenon. The discovery of at least 11 minerals, crystal and egg shape rock formations, and a 20 million year old Miocene age serenia fossil in the cave further add to its scientific value. The Puerto Princesa Underground River is declared as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. Overnight in Puerto Princesa.

 

Day 3: Transfer Puerto Princesa to El Nido (B)

This morning you will board a shared transfer from Puerto Princesa to El Nido, a pristine natural sanctuary home to a wealth of coral reefs, lagoons, islets, caves, coves, springs and waterfalls. On arrival check-in your new accommodation and overnight.

 

Day 4: El Nido Adventure 3D/2N (B/L/D)

Start of your amazing 3 day adventure of El Nido with a pick- up from your accommodations in El Nido. The first stop will be at Pinagbuyutan Island, where you will have the opportunity to enjoy swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing. Here you will enjoy a delicious typical Filipino lunch composed by a grilled fish and rice served on a banana leaf, and drinks in a bamboo cup or coconut shell. After lunch continue to Lagen Island, either by boat or kayak, and explore Cathedral cave, Fisherman village, and Snake Island, before reaching Ipil Beach, where you will set up camp and eat a local BBQ dinner. Enjoy the sunset and starry skies, and overnight.

 

Day 5:  El Nido Adventure 3D/2N (B/L/D)

Enjoy an early morning breakfast today and get ready for a morning full of snorkeling and sunbathing, together with a delicious lunch. In the afternoon visit Zimisu Island, Dalojo beach areas or Miniloc Island (Calm water conditions necessary). In the late afternoon arrive at your camping site, enjoy the sunset and dinner around the bonfire before overnight.

 

Day 6:  El Nido Adventure 3D/2N (B)

Have another early breakfast and go out this morning to visit Helicopter Island and Cadlao Island, where you will have the opportunity to go kayaking in the beautiful Cadlao Lagoon.

NOTE: The El Nido Adventure 3D/2N is just a sample itinerary. Often weather and fitness level of the individual guest also sets the barrier of what is possible or not to do and visit.

 

Day 8: El Nido to Puerto Princesa - Airport or Accommodation Drop-Off (B)

It is time to say goodbye to this beach paradise as you catch a transfer back to Puerto Princesa, where you will be dropped-off either at your next accommodation, or at the airport for your onwards flight.

On the last day you will be returning to Puerto Princesa in the early afternoon. If you plan to fly off on this day, we strongly recommend that you book a flight only after 4 pm, as otherwise you will risk missing it.

 

Additional Information:

Accommodations: Please be aware that this is a developing country and not all facilities may be up to the same standards as in your home country. Please also keep in mind that air-conditioning is not standard in the Philippines.

When booking budget and standard accommodations, we will try to book you in beachfront locations as much as possible. Our preferred accommodations have been selected for proximity to the beach, and for this reason most do not have swimming pools. Please don't expect swimming pools at hostel accommodations either.
